Benin City are one of the best bands around. Coming from the spoken word scene they have evolved into a afro-funk outfit. You can listen to tracks here. Fronted by Musa Okwonga and Joshua Idehen they breathe originality with such tracks as 'Boogieman'.
I have started to help them make their own style. Find Musa with a broach (esk) quill on his lapel that I made in reference to him being a poet.
